Crossroad Academy
(Alternative Education)

Crossroad Academy is located on the campus of Crossroad Child & Family Services and is accredited by both the Indiana Department of Education (Freeway Accreditation) and Cognia/AdvancED. A small student-to-teacher ratio enhances educational outcomes, and all students receive a personalized education based on a review of school records, other background information, and the Individualized Education Plan (IEP), if applicable. Please contact the School Principal at 260.484.4153, ext. 2044, or by email to begin enrollment. Tuition assistance may be available through the Lutheran Scholarship Granting Organization. Qualified students may receive full or partial scholarships.

Crossroad Academy prepares each student to be socially and academically ready for the next level of education or vocation by providing a program for students not succeeding in a traditional classroom setting. Certified elementary, secondary, and special education teachers lead instruction in each classroom. Crossroad Youth and Family Specialists assist with behavior management in classrooms and during activities and Title I assistants provide additional academic support to students.

Crossroad Academy offers instruction that includes both content and proven methods like Project Based Learning and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) to enhance a student's natural curiosity, promote cross-curriculum learning, and build positive social skills. A Behavior Incentive Program keeps students focused on their behavior and academic goals. Families receive daily behavior tracking with valuable information about their child's progress.

Our facilities include a gym, cafeteria, computer lab, media center, and playground. A Maker Space including a 3D printer, screenprinting machine, podcast studio, and more lets students explore their creative side.

Crossroad Academy serves students living with their families and clients in Crossroad’s residential treatment programs. Day students attend Crossroad Academy as an alternative to public education, and may or may not be involved in Crossroad treatment programs. Crossroad Academy’s Day Education program provides educational opportunities for children who can remain in their homes but are in need of a more structured educational environment. We accept referrals from families and local school corporations for the Day Education program.
